TexLive 2008 on openSUSE 11.1 ?


I would love to use TexLive 2008 on my brand new openSUSE 11.1, but I can’t find the package. In YaST the package has the version 2007.
After searching this forum I found that the publishing repository contains TexLive 2008, but it is only available for 11.0 and Factory.
Would it be safe to install TexLive 2008 from the Factory publishing repository? Or is there any repository containing TexLive 2008 for openSUSE 11.1?

Any help would be appreciated.


I would assume this is just a matter of time. Other packages, like LyX 1.6.1, are not yet available for 11.1.

Thank you, I guess I’ll wait then…
How long do you think it will take for the repository to be updated to openSUSE 11.1?

You can find TeXlive 2008 in Publishing repository
